well it was back in 2009 and i know they did another seat with lateral support like a wire system maybe they were trialing that as well but didnt want to give anything away possibly.

I've had a tour of their factory and some brochures etc but I can't find any pics of them on a ribcraft but I know I've seen it before.... Good old memory!

I would like to stay below the windscreen is my thinking but not sure what bases they sell will give best compromise. ( they sell 3)

i am sure theres one at ardoran marine [rib-craft black nice boat] with scot seats sula i think the name is he does ERR might be some shots on there or get in touch with tony he might put you onto the guy.
failing that measure up and send an enquiry.
the thing to think about is leg length you need your feet and legs to work with the seat when i fitted coastal pro seats on my bases they were 5 inches too high thier answer was mast steps on the bases and they didnt work for me because your feet are in one place all the time no good on long jaunts so i had new bases made,
notice the leg movements in the clip thats what i found others might disagree
cheers

I agree with Jeff. The important thing is to get the mounting height correct so your posture is good. Your concerns regarding the windscreen should be secondary.

Below window is important.

There is 2 types of seats they sell depending on what I want.

On my ribquest I was above the screen even with standard jockey seats and I agree important to maximise protection from the elements but I found and only having a 29 inch inside leg it wasn't achievable to have the correct seat position which is the main point of buying shock seats or your wasting 3000 possibly more,the shock seats are so good it changes the whole expearence but you do need to balance lateral movement where I noticed that most was when crossing wakes at shallow angles when the boat heels heavy to one side bit like putting your feet down on a bike to stop falling over is best I could discribe it.
Screen extension?
Cheers

All you do is buy the sitting down seats if it is an issue, hence looking for pictures if possible.

BTW, 3k......and the rest buddy
